In the recent history of Colombia, two factors have contributed to change the population structure, the Spanish conquest and the slave trading promoted principally by Portugal, England and Spain. As a consequence the native population of Colombia has been reduced and mixed with the European and African arriving groups. To assess the male ancestry of the(More)
We present population genetic data of 15 STRs (CSF1PO, D3S1358, D5S818, D7S820, D8S1179, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D21S11, FGA, PENTA D, PENTA E, TH01, TPOX and VWA) obtained from a sample of 617 unrelated individuals from Colombia. Deviations from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium were assessed and allele frequencies and parameters of forensic interest for each(More)
Allele frequencies and some forensic parameters for 12 autosomal microsatellites (CSF1PO, TPOX, THO1, VWA, D16S539, D7S820, D13S317, D5S818, F13A1, FESFPS, F13B, LPL) were estimated from three departments from Northwestern Colombia. The total number of samples analysed was 1045 individuals. Comparative analysis among the three studied departments and with(More)
Allele frequencies for 19 autosomal STRs (F13A01, FESFPS, F13B, LPL, D5S818, D7S820, THO1, TPOX, VWA31, CSF1P0, D16S539, D13S317, D3S1358, D8S1179, FGA, PENTA D, PENTA E, D21S11, D18S51) were estimated from a sample between 364 and 400 unrelated individuals living in the northern department of Antioquia.
Allele frequencies and haplotype analysis have been performed for eight Y-chromosome STRs (DYS19, DYS385 I and II, DYS389 I and II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393). Population data was obtained from a sample of 400 unrelated individuals living in Antioquia (Colombia). A total of 270 different haplotypes were found, and the haplotype diversity was 0.989.

Allele frequencies for eight short tandem repeats (STRs) (D5S818, D7S820, F13B, LPL, TH01, TPOX, VWA31 and CSF1PO) were estimated from a sample of 155 unrelated individuals living in different departments of the southwest of Colombia, Caquetá, Cauca, Huila, Nariño, Putumayo and Cauca Valley.
